Google Translate

واتمنى لكم لطيفة في اليوم!

Above decorative writing is how Google Translate renders “I wish you a nice day!” from English to Arabic. A native speaker notices the wrong sequence of words but says it literally means “And wish you pleasant in today”. Pretty close. One gets the point. Google Translate does online translation from/to Bulgarian, as well – Пожелавам ви приятен ден!
